Nicola LopezBrooklyn, NY
Born in Santa Fe, NM in 1975, Nicola López lives in Brooklyn, NY. Her work in drawing, printmaking, site-specific installation, sculpture and video examines and reconfigures our contemporary, human-built landscape, engaging architecture and urban structure as ever-accumulating, physical evidence of our human aspirations and failures. Drawing on anthropology, architecture, urban planning and historical and fictional explorations of utopia/dystopia, the work points to deep connections between our human-constructed world and systems and cycles of nature.
López’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. It has been shown in group exhibitions at museums including MoMA in NY, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in LA, the Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City and the Denver Art Museum in Denver, CO and featured in solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison, WI and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
